What technique do you use to destroy these when you see them around your neighborhood?
They are the gayest filesharing idea people have ever come up with and they deserve to be smashed, covered with more cement, or pulled out with pliers.
Find out if there's Dead Drops you can destroy near you.
Can be smashed
Can be used to destroy real devices (http://kukuruku.co/hub/diy/usb-killer)
Can be monitored via cctv
Can be used to inject malware via hardware exploits
None of the above
Deaddrops are dead. Long live piratebox.

I'm not even that tech savvy, but damn, these things are obviously fucking stupid.
Anarchism is a legitimate political philosophy with an interesting history and roots in science, philosophy, history, and so on. Most of the people who act like the stereotypical anarchist are either lifestyle anarchists (who are deeply criticized by most everyone else in the movement) or are edgy teenagers with no connection to anarchism as a political philosophy.
Dead drops are just a vector for viruses: this is literally what they were invented for. How do you not know this? I didn't realise some Jews were trying to convince people otherwise.
Shut your whore mouth, faggot. No one gives a shit about this but your gay ass. Nigger.
>Freeloading off of others work with zero theoretical justification
>Calling it 'his' project
>Not anticipating an obvious response
Boohoo, my socialist ideology.
I am proud to be /pol/ and expect all my /pol/ brothers to fight liberalism wherever they see it. Smashing, infecting and planting /pol/ literature on dead drops is just an easy way to start.
>>Freeloading off of others work with zero theoretical justification
The very foundation of communication is that you portray your ideas. You have not articulated to anybody as to how exactly creating a dead drop is "freeloading".
>>Calling it 'his' project
if he setup the usb sticks, then yes, it is his project.
>>Not anticipating an obvious response
criticizing somebody because you acted like an assclown on their platform is hardly a criticism of their platform. It just makes you look like a defenseless child.
You can't seriously be this stupid. /pol/ is one huge meme. The people who take it seriously are literally retarded. Nothing they say has any foundation in reality. They are everything they supposedly hate about the ess jay dubya boogeyman except on the other side of the spectrum. Grow the fuck up.
I don't live in a particularly large city, so I've never seen dead drops. I guess if one wanted to destroy one, they'd only need to take a hammer to the USB port to render it unusable.
That said, why destroy them needlessly? We already have enough obsolete and broken tech in the dumps.
Quite. Why is it only acceptable for the left to take direct action?
Also you won't see much whine about SJWs on /pol/ right now, that's gaymergayte stuff. Currently /pol/ is fixated on Trump and the cultural enrichment of Europe.
shit, this is 10 minutes away form me
what kind of haxx0r shit shall I put on it?
How sturdy are these things? Are they all cemented into a brick wall like OPs pic? According to that link, there's a handful near me that are 64GB. I'm tempted to go try and steal one. I could use a new flash drive.
Deaddrops are extremely dangerous. Destroying them is doing all the potential users a favor. Hopefully they will learn how to use less moronic forms of file sharing after their dead drops are destroyed.
There is a reason he said:
>Only poor people use these.
If you have enough strength you can take the whole thing out of the case, senpai
Looks like there's some in the list that are actually smart and list pirateboxes on it, like the only working one remotely near me:
>This drop is a 2 Terabyte wireless transfer over FTP. Connect to the open network named "Kiviso-Local" and then open any FTP client of your choice. The username is "anonymous" and the port is "20". Have fun!
Your right to put stuff in a public place for public use and expect it to not get vandalized?
>I stumbled upon this dead drop yesterday and plugged in today. Appears to be there from around December 18, 2012. At least that is what the only file on the drive said. I found 2 JPGs of a diary entry written by Dorothy. I added an advance copy of my book, 'Romantic Violence: Memoirs of an American Skinhead' in PDF form. Enjoy!
>mfw this is dead drop is in my city
> /g/ is a legit board
> most members are retards
its not bad in the city
i was living in the burbs and it was boring as fuck
uber bills were stacking up
now i live in avondale and theres a bar that sells $2 hamms and a taco place with flame tacos all withing 4 blocks of my house
shit is great
and i pay like 400 in rent too
yeah but where i lived before the closest taco place was taco burrito king like 2 miles away
i live in avondale now
its not like downtown downtown, like next to the sears tower but its in the city
its like north of logan square, next to the river and the highway
fuck calling it willis tower man, itll always be sears to me
i remember a long time ago my uncle took me with him to pick up my aunt from downtown, in a limo for some reason, and we drove by the sears and i got to hang out the sun roof
shit was fun
this is a great area. lots of places to eat and drink and i feel really safe here
better than sauganash. thats were you go to retire
None of you faggots have the balls to go smash one of these and take pics to prove you did it and then give out the location.
You people are fucking pussies. These drops are safe from the likes of you assclowns.
Pic related: Left is your typical mouthbreathing /g/tard.
>implying the local college doesnt have 3 smashed drops right now
In my senior year in high school, we had a Chicago history class that consisted of reading a book, and a shitload of trips downtown for no reason, was on that top floor before that skybox was there.
>hurr going to get virus
Wouldn't you just use a $5 dollar raspberry pi zero or something as an intermediary? What, are you literally dragging your desktop around and plugging it into these things?
>go to college campus at a place where people use laptops
>find power source
>connect router with usb stick
>give it SSID "JewsAreEvil"
>fill it with tons of /pol/ literature and make it read-only
>watch people freak out.
>move it around campus to continue triggering retarded liberals
And that's how you do it right.
>Status was set to broken/dead/stolen/gone on 2015-04-09 03:40:54
Somebody beat you to it, OP.
>How do we destroy them
With a hammer? Have you never done demolition work before famzilla?
Any non-retarded person would get to the first repeated drop and realize what is going on, and a retard isn't going to realize what a usb deaddrop is.
You're plan is stupid and you are a nigger.
>Stallman pics in an ISO
XD I'm laughing! And don't forget dank Stallman vids! XXDD
And an even more annoying way is to put some few Stallman-pics here and there. Either pure files in folders. Or why not an e-book collection? The books are as legit as e-books can be. But sprinkled in the margins are pics of Stallman.
No Stallman-pics here... ;_;
If you were really serious about dead drop filesharing, it wouldn't be hard to rig up something to prevent malicious drops from frying your hardware. Anyone with half a brain wouldn't be plugging their laptops into these anyways, you'd build something to handle the transfers for <$10 dollars.
I love the concept of embedding data in physical objects/locations, but USBs have too many problems.
What they need is something that you can just print and stick to a wall, like a 3d barcode, that could be scanned by anyone walking by. Obviously barcodes are extremely limited in the amount of data they can store, but I'm sure something similar could be achieved with printed circuits or something with a much higher storage capacity?
Holy shit... Guys, THIS IS THE FUTURE OF PIRACY, when the copyright companies take down every last torrent site, ban p2p, watch mediafire like hawks this will be our last hope in sharing files.
Yeah, the best case for Stallman-pics is that he looks like a fucking retarded loon.
this shold be the replacement for sites that index torrent magnet links, ya?
anyone can destroy the dead drop by using for instance pliers or a hammer, by high voltage from a static field, with high temperature from a blowtorch, or other methods of physical force. It is possible to make the USB key more difficult to vandalize or to extract, by sealing it in a hole deeper than the length of the USB key (at least 2 cm more), this requiring to connect only a USB extender cable of type female-male (standard type A). Sometimes the dead-drop itself can be vandalism of the building.
Okay, just a theoretically speaking, is it possible for the owner to change the drive to write and create a script so that after x amount of time it auto formats, where if its plugged in after x date is auto erases everything on it? It would basically be a self maintaining drive.
Or annoying SK non-pr0n.
USB Deaddrop users:
>think they're in some kind of underground secret society
>waiting for trinity from the matrix to contact them
>actually believe in the NWO, and that they are a part of it
time that could be better spent reading SICP
everyboyd, if you see one of these, upload a pdf of SICP to it
Why does /g/ feel the need to bitch about literally everything, if you don't like it just don't fucking use it, why fuck up other peoples stuff just cause YOU don't like it . it's like if I were to just go around slapping iPhones out of peoples hands cause I don't like them, instead of just buying and Android for myself and letting the retards fend for themselves. Why do you have to get your size XXXXXL panties in a bunch over shit that has nothing to do with you
>i have a surplus of like 100 2-8 gb memory sticks lying around that were never used or given away at work
>read this thread
>notice the autism
>realize I can beat him in autism
I will start asking for old drives to stick them around just for you, anon.
>people actually plug random usb sticks on their computers?
>edgy 15 year olds
Or hipsters vandalizing property yappig about 'internetnauts' and 'new public horizons'.
Then I pic the 15-y/o's. Preferably girls. They'll grow up.
Because blatant vandalism and bad philosophy* makes us look bad.
*) Never considered that the DD can be...
...filled with CP.
That's why SICP seems to be an interesting book, because it's about philosophy. Or why not this babby?
It's called a charge pump. Basically if you charge 20 capacitors in parallel to 5V from the USB and then connect them in series it makes 100V.
I find it hilarious when someone takes a very specific stance on a topic only pertaining to a board on the chons, then refer to their stance as that of "normal people". Lol fucking turbo nerd.
Let's rewrite one post that to be about DD, shall we?
>I got my laptop zapped with a charged DD when I was 19, no idea who did it cuz I was dropping around. If I knew who gifted me, I would have gone back for more.
>I am trying to get FULL BLOWN CP. I'm legally full blown, but my last pic count was only 14000. I'm trying to get into the 100,000 mark but since the feds are ruining the chances (I don't use Tor but I know nealy everyone else does), I will still be on the prowl for some computer ruining DD to get my CP collection into overdrive.
Thanks OP! Now I know that there is only one dead drop within 100 km of me. I have a shit-ton of flash drives from conferences. I think I'm gonna make one and hide it in the woods somewhere.
Pirate boxes are stupid too. They can be triangulated and you have to power a huge router.
The need for a huge router is fucking stupid. We have stuff like wifi direct that can be run on a single smart phone.
Thing to do is run something like this on a solar powered pi zero and leave it in the woods
>NSA's job more difficult
-if your hidding why the fuck would you comew out ?
-The NSA will simply make a terrorist attack and relate it to dead drops and force each state to install 2 cameras at each dead drop.
honestly, it looks like some social science student came up with this dumb fucked idea.
Yes, you get the software from flashboot.ru or some cuink site. Websites are completely in russian or chinkese and the software is too (probably mostly chinese tho) because the chinese make these things and the russians just need to run a fake 1tb usb business on the side because of the bad lamprey populations.
Yeah but actually solar charges are kinda unpractical, I had better luck with multiple powerbanks.
We all have dat old android phone we don't use or with shattered screen.
Pirtatebox are still hard to spot around, but maybe in a school/university environment they're easier to deploy.
I can foresee with greater internet censorship or file sharing limitations, this will get more and more common as people get to know this.
There's no philosophy behind it, some files need to be shared and both parties agreed a dead drop was the best way to do it. People who use dead drops for the most part understand the risks the same way that most people who used gnutella file sharing understood the risks. Witch were almost the same. The point of my post wasn't to say that its the most secure method (especially if they are hidden where you manlets can find them) but to point out that a lot of your are getting pissed about something that has absolutely nothing to do with you, won't harm you. And is generally something you shouldn't be concerned with, when you break a dead drop all you succeed in doing is making someone else's life unessairily difficult. The reason you used to justify it doesn't matter, you're a dick. Every dead drop I've used I eventually went dressed as a maintenance worker , removed the drive, and patched the wall or whatever it was it. But I will give you that its vandalisim
